As yours is a bike conversion, the speedo is on the front, so there should be no issues with changing the relative size of the rear rims/tyres.
Saying that, to maintain the stance, if you increase the depth of the tyre you should reduce the size of the rim.

At the end of the day, running low pressures on the back will give a less harsh ride, so you just need to balance that with the relative depth of rubber.

Maybe you just want more rubber than rim?
